European Registry of Pediatric Acute Kidney Injury treated with Dialysis


This pediatric acute dialysis registry was established to describe in detail the epidemiology and outcome of AKI treated with dialysis in Europe. Both critical and non-critical patients treated with any dialysis modality (PD, IHD and CRRT) are included.

Possible associations between dialysis modality choice and outcome both in terms of survival and renal function are evaluated.

Furthermore, the association of various clinical variables with outcome is evaluated. These factors include primary disease, co-morbidities, nephrotoxic agents, fluid overload, anuria, basic hemodynamic parameters, and nutritional intake. In patients treated in PICUs, the effects of Multiple Organ Distress Syndrome (MODS), severity score, mechanical ventilation, basic intensive care parameters (SO2, FiO2, mean airway pressure, PaO2) are included in the analysis.
